Following Trump’s stunning upset this week, the white nationalists who had long supported the Republican candidate were unsurprisingly elated. David Duke, one of Trump’s most vocal supporters who recently lost his bid for the U.S. Senate, was no exception.
“We have had an incredible victory,” Duke crowed, adding that while he “didn’t succeed” in his senate race, he already knows “the media will always be the enemy of David Duke, and people like Don Black, people on the alt-right.” But nevertheless, Trump’s victory in the general election “was a confirmation of the work I’ve been doing my whole life.”
He reminded listeners that when he ran for president in 1992, he denounced the “massive immigration” that is ” destroy[ing] the character, and the values, and the freedoms, and the well-being of America.” It was precisely this platform that Donald Trump adopted when he announced his candidacy in 2015, which is why his victory was a victory for white nationalists everywhere.
“This is one of the best days of my life,” he said, calling it a day when the American people said they would take their country back, preserve their heritage, and “stand up and liberate our people from these international banker globalists, these media liars and destroyers, these political hacks and political sell-outs in the Republican Party as well as the Democratic sell-outs.”
Duke predicted that white nationalists like himself are “on the verge of changing everything” and called this “a great day” for them. “This is the first victory, the first, greatest victory that I’ve seen for our heritage and this country — true America — I’ve seen in my lifetime. And it’s an amazing thing, folks, and it is an incredible moment to be alive. You should all be proud.”
We have had an incredible victory. My particular race, we didn’t succeed. No question about it. But let me tell you something, folks, there’s a lot of questions about that election. But that’s not important. I’ve never really been concerned about my individual success, or the way anybody views me. I know that the media will always be the enemy of David Duke, and people like Don Black, people on the alt-right — because they are an enemy of our heritage, our freedom, our people. They’re purposefully trying to ethnically cleanse the European people from their own homelands and from the United States of America.
But this victory today was a confirmation of the work I’ve been doing my whole life, and many others have been doing for decades. You know, years ago, in 1992 when I ran for the Republican nomination for president of the United States — and I got a lot of votes in a lot of primaries even after getting excluded from the debates. In fact I got more votes, for instance, in places like South Carolina than Ben Carson did. Almost as much as the $25 million that Mr. Bush expended.
But for these years, in 1992, I stood up, and I said we’ve got to stop this massive immigration, it’s gonna destroy the character, and the values, and the freedoms, and the well-being of America. And of Europe. I stood up and said that we are losing our jobs to China and Mexico. I stood up and talked about the international bankers who are robbing our people, and the corruption of the political process. I stood up against the media that lies to us every day, and degenerates our people in Hollywood. And this election is an incredible victory.
It’s not just a victory for me. It’s a victory for each and every one of you. And it’s an amazing day, ladies and gentlemen, just know it. This is one of the best days of my life. And it’s gotta be one of the best days of your life as well, because today is a day when the American people said, “We are going to take our nation back. We are going to preserve our heritage. We are gonna preserve the future of our children. And we’re gonna stand up and liberate our people from these international banker globalists, these media liars and destroyers, these political hacks and political sell-outs in the Republican Party as well as the Democratic sell-outs. We are making a statement.”
The principles that won this election: the non-interventionism — the insane policies we’ve had with these insane wars all over the world — the control of our politics, the corruption by groups like Goldman Sachs — which is the biggest single contributor to politics in the United States of America, corporate contributor in politics in America. In the last video of Donald Trump, he showed Mr. Blankfein of Goldman Sachs. He showed Janet Yellen, the Jewish head of our Federal Reserve, and every head and chairman and vice chairman of the last four decades have been Jewish tribalists supporting their fellow mafia people — [the] Jewish mafia that’s controlling the banking in this country. And also they’re involved in media as well.
We are on the verge of changing everything. We are changing everything. This is a great day for us. And now is the time, not to lay back — we definitely have a time to celebrate, and we need to celebrate and really gloat over the fact we beat these enemies. This is the first victory, the first, greatest victory that I’ve seen for our heritage and this country — true America — I’ve seen in my lifetime. And it’s an amazing thing, folks, and it is an incredible moment to be alive. You should all be proud.
